Car Decals To Extreme

This morning on my way to work I was behind a van that had the cute little car decals taken to an extreme. I decided to do an artist rendering of the back of the minivan for you. Keep in mind this covered the ENTIRE back of the van, each child was probably 4 inches tall. Enjoy.

class 6

In this lesson I learned how to give my photos a grungy edged look. I REALLY like how this turned out and I'm sure I will be doing it to TONS of photos!


class 5

In this class we learned how to make a photo look like it was taken by an old fashion film camera. I think it turned out pretty neat, what do you think?


Class 4

In class 4 we learned how to add texture to the photo to give it a whole new look. I took this picture last night of Jillian helping my mom pick the garden. She LOVES getting in the garden and looking for vegetables to pick! She actually started eating a tomato straight from the vine! YUM!

class 3

In lesson 3 we learned how to give photos a "vintage" look... what do you think???

class 2

This lesson I learned how to make a "stamp" in photoshop. It's really neat because I can make a stamp out of just about any file!

class 1

I am currently taking an online photo editing class on Jessica Sprague's website and I wanted to share my work from the first class. I'll try and post each of my assignments on here as I do them. I am really enjoying the class and learning exactly how to use photoshop!

Finger Painting

One evening last week I got finger paints out and let Jillian "paint" for the first time. I really think she was more interested in painting herself than the paper but she had a good time!


18 Months

Friday we took Jillian for her 18 month pictures, these were by far the hardest pictures we have ever taken! Jillian just wanted to keep walking all over the studio and messing with things she didn't need to mess with! Every time we told her to sit down she would walk over to the photographer and sit down next to her, not in front of the backdrop! Oh well, we still got some pretty good pictures.


We had a wonderful 4th of July and hope you all did to! Jillian and I (Michael was sleeping since he is working nights right now) started the day off hanging out at the Shickles pad with the Zoots, the Brown-Comer's and Nina and family. Jillian had so much fun following the big girls around and eating snow cones with Miss P. I was a dork and forgot my camera so I am hoping the resident photographer of the group happened to get some good shots of Jillian!

After nap time we headed over to my dad's house for dinner and fireworks with the family. Since Michael came with us we remembered the camera!

Vote for Jillian

Since Miss P won last month I want to try one more time to round up the votes for Jillian. If you could please vote for Jillian every day during the month of July (and ask your friends to vote too) we would really appreciate it!
